Where is Ecuador ?We have shown how to draw the map of South America
where you will also find Ecuador
It is the only country which is named after the Equator
and Equator actually passes through it.
[There is another country Equatorial Guinea, an island country
off the coast of Africa BUT Equator DOES NOT pass through it]
A strange fact is although Equator passes through ECUADOR
the climate of the country is NOT HOT because most of the country
is on the Andes mountains.
The capital city QUITO has an equable climate with similar temperature
hovering between 10 to 20 deg C all through the year.
